Abstract

The paper introduces SoundLab, a 3D spatial audio research and practice unit at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, co-directed by PerMagnus Lindborg and Ryo Ikeshiro, and serves as a progress report. It begins with a description and its objectives involving research, artwork, teaching and outreach. It then gives a brief account of the local context of electroacoustic music in Hong Kong both in academia and in independent music and art scenes to which SoundLab aims to contribute through its activities. The overview is partly based on preliminary findings from an ongoing study based on interviews with local musicians and artists. It is followed by the design of a hemispherical loudspeaker array dedicated to high spatial resolution audio, developed after consulting a number of academic institutions with comparable facilities and programmes. Details concerning the space, equipment and usage are considered. Future plans in relation to its objectives are given in closing.
